The court also cancelled Dutt’s bail plea, and ordered that the actor be taken into custody immediately.

Special Judge P D Kode also imposed a fine of rupees 25,000 on Dutt, and rejected his probation plea.

“Sanjay made others commit offence. Sanjay’s act has not harmed anyone, but possession of AK-47 was dangerous,” Judge Kode observed.

Dutt’s friends, Kersi Adajenia and Yusuf Nullwala, convicted under the Arms Act, were awarded two-year and five-year jail terms respectively, while Russi Mulla, who kept Dutt’s pistol, was released on probation, after furnishing a bond of one lakh rupees.

According to the the Probation of Offenders Act, a person convicted of any offence other than the one punishable with death or life imprisonment, can be released on probation instead of serving the sentence in prison.

Dutt has already spent nearly 15 months, as an undertrial before being released on bail in 1996.

On November 28, the TADA court found Dutt guilty under the Arms Act and not the TADA Act.

The minimum sentence for the charges under which Dutt has been found guilty is three years. The 15 months (from July 4, 1994 to October 16, 1995) that Dutt has already served in jail will be deducted from the sentence.

Dutt was booked for possessing an AK-56 rifle that had come in a consignment of arms and explosives meant for use in the Mumbai serial blasts that killed 257 people.

Dutt had admitted to the charges in his confession made shortly after his arrest in on April 22, 1993. But later retracted the same.

He had confessed that underworld don Abu Salem visited his Pali Hill home in January 1993. Samir Hingora and Hanif Kadawala, the two close associates of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and proprietors of Magnum Video brought Salem to his home, he had said.

He further said that out of the three AK-56 rifles brought by Salem and some magazines and 250 rounds, he kept only one AK-56 rifle.

Dutt said that he needed the weapons to protect his family as threatening calls were received during the 1992-93 Mumbai riots. In spite of repeated complaints, he said, there was no police protection given to him or his family.

But when he heard about the blasts and the arrests of Samir and Hanif, he asked his friend Yusuf Nulwalla to destroy the gun.

On June 1, Samir Hingora – the man who supplied the AK-56 rifle to Dutt was awarded nine years’ rigorous imprisonment.
